Introduction workshop for a new pesticide module in OpenLISEM
Pesticides are used a lot in current day agriculture. The safety of pesticides for humans and the environment is constantly under debate. An example of this are the debates in Europe about the renewing of the permission for Glyphosate. In my PhD research I tried to understand the runoff and erosion related transport of pesticides from sloping agricultural fields in more detail. One of the products of this research is an extension of the OpenLISEM model to include dynamic event-based pesticide transport and redistribution. A first version of this extension is now finished, and I would like to share this with you.
During the workshop, the main emphasis will be on setting up and using the OpenLISEM-pesticide model yourself. Besides that, you will get more information about the OpenLISEM model in general, about the concepts behind the pesticide module and we will discuss future development and application examples. After finishing the workshop you will:
- understand the theory and implementation of the pesticide module in OpenLISEM
- know how to setup up a model run in OpenLISEM including the pesticide module
- be able to analyze basic simulation results at the outlet as well as spatially in the catchment
- be able to test different scenario’s related to changing environmental conditions or reducing pollution, and understand the effects as simulated by OpenLISEM
No specific knowledge on modelling, runoff processes or pesticides is required, if you are interested in the model or this topic, you are welcome to join!
